His-and-hers brass ID bracelet in a classic design. Each piece is hand-hammered, creating a unique surface. The name plate may be inscribed or worn as-is. Available in small and medium. Made in Oakland, California. (
Identification bracelets similar to these were issued to American soldiers dispatched during WWII. Soldiers in turn often commissioned "sweetheart bracelets" for loved ones they left behind. The bracelets varied from simple nameplates to flourished chains denoting rank, country of origin and other personal information about the wearer.
Jewelry designer Marisa Mason re-created this brass ID bracelet after one that her father used to wear. She begins by hand-carving the template on which each bracelet is hammered, one at a time. If desired, the bracelet can be inscribed, with a name, word, or motif. The luster of the material and the simplicity of design can also be worn well as it is.
Continual wear will keep the brass in good shape. If it becomes tarnished, a household brass polish will revive the original tonal quality.
Jewelry designer Marisa Mason was born and raised in the canyons of Santa Barbara, California. She began making jewelry as a young child. Zuni and Mexican pieces were handed down to her from her grandmother and parents, which inspire many of Mason's current designs.
